      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Holcomb says...

      There's no question that Weill Cornell offers all the benefits and resources of a world-class academic medical center – but we present ourselves more like your local community hospital. What makes us different is the patient-friendly environment. The human element is still emphasized here."

       Dr. Holcomb is a Gynecologic Oncologist at the New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Medical College and works closely with other members of the Weill Cornell Obstetrics and Gynecology Department. He also closely collaborates with colleagues in the departments of Hematology Oncology, Radiation Oncology and Surgery.  He is gratified to work with so many gifted colleagues and to deliver the benefits of cutting-edge medicine to the patients they share.

       In addition to helping diagnose and treat gynecologic cancers, Dr. Holcomb continues to develop more effective techniques in chemical, radiological and surgical treatments for these pernicious conditions. He is also very interested and active in the development of robotic and laparoscopic surgical techniques for gynecologic cancers.  Dr. Holcomb was recently appointed Director of Minimally Invasive Surgery. 

       Dr. Holcomb's research contributions to the field of gynecologic oncology have included dozens of peer-reviewed journal articles, a book chapter, an interactive CD-ROM, and many presentations at regional and national conferences and symposia. His research activities include clinical trials of new chemotherapy regimens as well as research in endometrial cancers and lymph node sampling. Topics of his research articles and presentations have included treatment of locally advanced cervical cancer, pre-invasive cervical lesions in HIV-positive women, and analyses of cell characteristics in human ovarian cancers.

       His dedication to medical education was recognized by the Council on Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology, where he received the National Faculty Award in 2002 and 2004. He has been named one of New York's Top Doctors by New York Magazine, one of the New York Metro Area's Top physicians by Castle-Connolly Medical Ltd., and one of America's Leading Doctors by Black Enterprise magazine. Dr. Holcomb served as the President of the Board of Advisors for the American Cancer Society Upper Manhattan Office as well as President of the Metropolitan Gynecologic Cancer Society. 

       Dr. Holcomb believes strongly in a humanistic approach to medicine and establishing a personal connection with his patients. He believes the quality of patient care is enhanced by the quality of the caregiver's commitment to care. If the patient feels cared about as a person, it helps every aspect of that patient's medical care.

       "The more I practice, the more I appreciate the training I received here at Weill Cornell."

       A graduate of Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, Dr. Holcomb received his M.D. at New York Medical College, Valhalla, NY. His post-doctoral training has included an internship and residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at New York Hospital – Cornell Medical Center, and a fellowship in Gynecologic Oncology at the State University of New York Downstate Health Science Center at Brooklyn-Kings County Hospital Center. Formerly the Director of Gynecologic Oncology at New York's Beth Israel Medical Center, and Assistant Clinical Professor at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, Dr. Holcomb joined the faculty at Weill Medical College of Cornell University in 2006.
